Whether from car crashes, falls, assaults or accidents, traumatic injuries can take many forms and happen anywhere. When traumatic injuries occur, quick and professional response can mean the difference between life and death. Texas trauma hospitals have advocated for a dedicated state funding to ensure every Texan has access to lifesaving trauma care. During the 2019 legislative session, Texas hospitals helped pass
legislation supported by by a coalition of organizations representing law enforcement, hospitals, health care professionals, people with disabilities, counties, the judiciary and others that provides a new, sustainable source of trauma hospital funding for designated trauma hospitals.
